Unclear meaning.

For place with drinking water use more specific amenity=drinking_water is typically used.

man_made=water_tap may be added if it is a water tap to clarify situation.

man_made=water_tap with drinking_water=no is typically used to indicate tap without drinking water

Currently used for places to get arbitrary water; often, these will be open water tanks found in cemetaries that can fill up with either rain water, or water from a tap.
